Warming Teas Blend-your-own comfort

Fill your kettle. Grab your favourite tea cup or teapot. Blend a few key ingredients. Get yourself comfortable. Now … enjoy a quick cup, a pot, or—if you’re using dried plants—a big batch of DIY herbal tea to have on hand for weeks to come.

Energy

This tea will restore waning energy, without the crash that comes with coffee or sugar. Zesty spruce has a high dosage of vitamin C, so it was used by early Europeans to help ward off scurvy. Today, vitamin C has been shown in recent research to reduce fatigue. Rhodiola naturally boosts energy levels while relieving stress, and mint refreshes and awakens.

1 part fresh or dried spruce needles
1 part fresh or dried wild mint (or peppermint)
1 part dried rhodiola root

Use 1 Tbsp (15 mL) tea per 1 cup (250 mL) boiling water. Steep for a minimum of 7 minutes.

Digestion

This tea blend is formulated to kick-start sluggish digestion and to calm stomach upset. Wild mint stimulates digestion, is thought to soothe stomach irritation or nausea, and promotes the flow of bile. Yarrow, a flower in the same family as camomile, is used to calm indigestion and heartburn.

1 part dried or fresh yarrow (flowers, leaves, and stems)
1 part dried or fresh wild mint (or peppermint)
Use 1 Tbsp (15 mL) tea per 1 cup (250 mL) boiling water. Steep for a minimum of 7 minutes.
